Respect Earns Results.

Settlements shouldn’t mean settling for less.

In a settlement, the insurance company and their attorneys are looking out for their own interests. But when a Martin attorney is on the case, they view the situation differently. They know that our client won’t be taken advantage of.

They are also well aware that we know what we’re doing, are very good at it and always put the interests of our clients first. For our clients, this typically means that we can arrive at the right settlement much sooner. More than a third of our referrals come by way of the workers we’ve represented.

Martin attorneys will help you weigh your options.

In Pennsylvania, injured workers with a lasting impairment can negotiate a lump-sum settlement that includes recovery of unreimbursed medical expenses and other disputed amounts, instead of receiving weekly benefit payments. The process requires detailed consideration by the claimant before making a decision. There are advantages and disadvantages to lump sum settlements. Martin attorneys will help you weigh your options.

Is a lump sum settlement right for you?

Frequently, insurers will offer a workers’ compensation settlement because they want to bring clarity and closure to a situation that represents a big unknown—what the case is going to cost them.

Accepting a lump sum payment means that weekly checks will be replaced by one final payment. There are a number of questions injured workers should ask themselves before deciding on a lump sum settlement, including:

  • Will I regain my health?
  • Will I be able to return to work?
  • How long is my case likely to be in dispute?
  • What is the amount of benefits left on my claim?
  • Would I be eligible for further benefits?
  • Will my condition deteriorate over time?

The answers to these questions will help to determine the best course of action, but they aren’t always easy to find without the help of an attorney. Martin attorneys will call upon their experience, taking all considerations into account to arrive at the best decision.
